NPPS Logo

The Nuclear and Particle Physics Software (NPPS) Group in Brookhaven National Laboratory's Physics Department participates in a wide range of experiments across BNL's nuclear and particle physics programs. NPPS provides software and expertise across many technical areas, with a particular emphasis on common software solutions.

Technical Teams

Beyond experiment-specific work, NPPS members and collaborators make up technical teams spanning the group's many areas of expertise. Teams may be actively engaged in cross-experiment projects or may act as technical forums sharing expertise and exploring common project opportunities.
